if city people tell their kids their pets “went to go live on a farm” when they die, where do the pets of the farmers’ kids go???

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future
because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive
our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
i dont want to go back to school i want to travel the world and watch more shows on netflix
But you can’t watch Netflix outside the US
yet here i am, watching bobs burgers in australia, living my dream
when we were babies my dad was a stay-at-home dad while my mom kicked ass in the courtroom but he would carry my twin brother and me around with one baby on the front and one on his back in backpacks
and women would come up and look at how cute i was and coo over me and be like “awww how cute wow”
and my dad would be like, “YOU KNOW WHAT’S CUTER THAN ONE BABY”
and then he’d spin around
there was my brother
I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.
That generation is here.
